It's that time of year again when it gives us much pleasure to host the 48 hour Film Project. As you may already know - The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend where teams of filmmakers register to make a film in just one weekend. The best part - all films made during the 48 hours premier 'Big Screen' to the public.

This year Nairobi joins over 120 cities across the globe to compete in telling their own stories. The Nairobi competition takes place from Friday 21st - Sunday 23rd November 2014 - Registration is open and for only Ksh. 8,000 teams can register to participate regardless of their experience, age, team size, equipment - whatever!!! Deadline for registration is 15th November 2014

How the competition works:

- Friday evening - teams pick a genre from a hat and required elements are revealed. (Each team must you use a character, prop and line of dialogue in their film.)

- Sunday evening - teams try to beat the 7pm deadline and deliver their completed 'short' films.

Here's how you can be part of this exciting experience:

- Join a Team or Start your own team - I promise you'll love it. (Or have a thoroughly exciting story to tell about your weekend!)

"I love this competition because it gives EVERYONE an opportunity to be a filmmaker. Regardless! An opportunity to tell "their" story - whatever that might be. It excites me that 48HFP has such potential to bring the gems of storytelling to light." says Carol Kioko, Nairobi's City Producer - 48 Hour Film Project
